Gangtok is the capital of the Indian frontier state of Sikkim. Sikkim used to be an independent kingdom until 1975, when the state merged with India. The friendly population of Gangtok comprises of ethnic Sikkimese, Tibetans, Nepalis, and immigrants from Northern and Western parts of India. 

I have been visiting Gangtok almost every year since 2006, this being the second time for documentation.
